Colorado state senator Chris Romer is pushing for that state to give in-state tuition to illegal aliens, and yesterday his bill passed a state senate committee (link). CO senate president Peter Groff is quoted as saying:
"For me, this is a moral issue, that we should not shackle the future of children because of the sins of their fathers."
If you oppose this bill, one of the best ways to fight it is to have an impact on the career of one of the politicians who supports it. And, you can do that by asking either Romer or Groff a very tough question - not a rant - designed to show that they're engaging in false compassion and that they're putting the interests of foreign citizens ahead of the interests of U.S. citizens. Video of their response can then be uploaded to Youtube. If the person's name is put in the title of the video and it gets enough views and high ratings, it will probably end up on the first page of Google search results for their name. And, that will send a message to other state or national legislators who try to take things away from U.S. citizens in order to give them to foreign citizens who are here illegally.
Here's a sample question you can ask:
You support giving in-state tuition to illegal aliens. But, each such discount given to an illegal alien represents one that's taken away from a U.S. citizen. What would you say to a U.S. citizen who can't go to college because of what you support?
If you aren't in Colorado or can't ask either of them that or a similar question, then please promote this plan via forums, local groups, and the like.
